CLEAN WATER


When you give to the Minnesota Environmental Fund, you are helping protect and restore Minnesota’s clean water, a vital resource for us all. Together we can ensure that future generations will enjoy access to our abundant water for clean drinking, family recreation, thriving fisheries and a healthy environment. Your donations are protecting clean water by:
  • Conserving and caring for sensitive natural lands, our lakes, forests and wetlands, by working with public and private land owners, as well as with local communities and businesses.

  • Ensuring that rural waters for drinking and wildlife are restored and protected through the promotion of healthy water practices by training next generation farmers, targeting headwater prairie streams and reducing polluted runoff from farmland.

  • Defending clean waters from pollution and toxic threats and ensuring safe and affordable drinking water for all by tracking water quality, sharing critical science and advocating with decision-makers for just policy decisions.
